I interrupt my frequent unhappy rants about my low self esteem, panic-inducing lifestyle and all the ways fandom craps on itself to bring you ducklings in dresses made of cupcake papers. Ok. You need this. Shut up and accept that you need this.

okay but how about this

tiny mythology

a centaur who barely makes it up to your waist but hates when you point that out

a mermaid who spends her time splashing around in your sink

a gryphon who spends all her time flying in circles around your head

a six-inch basilisk that makes you feel a little dizzy if you look it in the eye

PEBBLE GOLEMS

MOUSE-SIZED UNICORNS

AN ASURA WHO’S ONLY A FEW INCHES TALL SO HE SETTLES FOR REARRANGING AROUND THE STUFF ON YOUR DESK WHILE YOU SLEEP

A DRAGON THE SIZE OF YOUR CAT THAT CAN STILL BREATHE FIRE THAT MELTS STEEL IN SECONDS

TINY MYTHICAL CREATURES

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts
